WHAT WORKS IN EDUCATION The George Lucas Educational Foundation

John Simon

I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in the Mat-Su School District in Alaska. I have a BS in Psychology, MAT in Elementary Education, and a Type C Certificate in Educational Leadership. My long term goal is to go back to school and turn my Type C EL into a PhD. I have work as a mentor teacher training staff in interactive learning. In 2009-10 I was the principal of a large elementary school in Wasilla, Alaska.
This year I am honored to be part of a small team that was charged with developing and implementing PBIS in 14 large elementary schools in our district. I work alongside staff and students developing strategies that improve the learning environment for the students. I also work one on one and in small groups teaching social skills lessons.
I love my job!
